An object-oriented program was developed to run in Windows environment. The program is designed (1) to identify DNA in multiple sequence files; (2) to electronically capture search results from the National Center for Biotechnology Institute (NCBI) databases; and (3) to retrieve stored results data in a interconnected file structure organized for easy review and further analysis. The program automatically creates folders for placement of sequence identification data, locates known sequences of DNA for removal, interacts with the BLAST program on the NCBI website to identify unknown DNA data by sequence comparison, stores and parses the HTML formatted match results into Excel files and compiles the best match from each file into a DNA library file. The program automates each of these steps involved in the identification of the DNA nucleotide sequences capturing all pertinent NCBI data in a spreadsheet format.
